Richard and Mildred Loving, who were arrested in 1958 for violating Virginia’s ban on interracial marriage, fought their conviction all the way to the Supreme Court in a landmark case. Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle is an initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History that uses the power of documentary films to encourage community discussion about America’s civil rights history.
A discussion moderated by an NSU professor from the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences will follow the screening. Light refreshments will be served. Location: Cotilla Gallery, Alvin Sherman Library For more information, contact Public Library Services; 954-262-5477.
